Meet Our Celebrity Chef
Chef Jonathon Sawyer, the “vinegar-obsessed” Cleveland based chef was named the Food & Wine magazine’s “Best New Chef” in 2010 and in 2015 he took home the coveted James Beard award for Best Chef: Great Lakes. After graduating from the Pennsylvania Institute of Culinary Arts, Sawyer began his career at the Biltmore Hotel in Miami, before moving to New York City to work with celebrity Chef Charlie Palmer, at Kitchen 22. Sawyer is no stranger to working with a variety of cuisines. Over the years, he has opened “ Trentina” a fine-dining restaurant focusing on Italian cuisine, “The Greenhouse Tavern”, a French gastropub and “Noodlecat”, a noodle house highlighting local ingredients and sustainability. Along with his stand-alone restaurants in Ohio, in 2012 Chef Sawyer opened three specialty restaurants housed inside the First Energy Stadium and the Quicken Loans Area, the homes of the Cleveland Browns and the Cavaliers respectively. Chef Sawyer has also made several national television appearances on shows like The Chew, Iron Chef America, The Dish, and Best Thing I Ever Ate.
